|[Eg0_131] Ayato & Natalia Kamia : Cluster - Ayato & Natalia Kamia|
Between abandoned strings warped tapes and esoteric radio broadcasts, Ayato and Natalia Kamia have found / created a new territory to explore. They are not afraid of silence, they've patiently listened to the resonating spaces (inside / outside) and built 8 surprising pieces that will spin around your ears like sparkles from some unknow satellites. Despite of its short lenghth, Cluster is a very rich album, containing enough ideas to fill the full discography of less inspired musicians...You'l...

Sobria Ebrietas is the main sound project of Bertrand Barbier since 1997. It gathers a rather varied range of musical elements : minimalist and/or eastern flavored (to our ears) melodic compositions, experimental dark ambient, noise bursts, , groovy electro-industrial rhythms... Nevertheless after listening to media res, a compilation covering 15 years in 2H30, you might notice the paradoxical cohesiveness of Bertrand's rich soundwork, who carefully selected 25 of his favorite tracks for eg0ci...
